Cerro Wire LLC., a manufacturer of copper electrical building wire and cable, announces its unique packaging, shipping, and delivery advantages, which make wire reels easier and safer to ship, and improve inventory and stock keeping.
Wire reels are labeled with large tape announcing the wire size, making it far easier to view wire size from a distance than standard labeling practices. Wire size is also printed directly on the wire in a large size (MaxPrint) to improve identification. Items placed on a pallet of mixed goods are carefully organized, with products grouped together and labeled with an itemized label which includes a piece count for that pallet, making verifying inventory with shipping manifests more efficient. Barcode scanners insure a very high rate of accuracy in the picking process. Cerro Wire also labels special cut reels, so the customer knows exactly where that reel needs to go on a job site.
For reels that must be shipped upright on their flanges, Cerro Wire uses an innovative vertical cradle pallet,
“We have given a tremendous amount of thought to developing packaging and shipping techniques that help our customers tell how much of each type of stock keeping unit is on a pallet,” said Barry Medendorp, Director of Supply Chain. “Nothing is hidden, labels face out and we layer all goods; we also group items together so products are easy to locate.”
In addition to improved packaging and shipping practices, Cerro Wire offers industry leading fill rates, shipping the vast majority of its orders in two days or less and 100 percent complete. Delivery times are quick because the company emphasizes in stock availability and flexible multi-site manufacturing.
